Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

the flash plugin on 9.10 64 bit does not register simple touchpad
clicks. otherwise, the touchpad works fine. but, with this issue, one
cannot use a lot of flash content online.

for example, look at this embedded youtube video:

one cannot watch it, as one needs to click on the play icon. but when
clicking on the play icon, it get highlighted, but no click is
registered, and thus playing doesn't start.

but it gets worse. look at the nvidia site / area selection screen:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/global/global.php - one cannot select any
region, as no click is resgistered - thus, one cannot look at the nvidia

interestingly, youtube videos on the youtube site work fine, as long as
playing starts automatically (without the need to click). but all
embedded video fails.
